    Thats much more offesive than prayer.
    I always thought they should just ban being old. It's a lifestyle choice, you know, they sure as hell weren't born that way.

    This is the problem with liberals that are against any form of religion in the square. You think that because there is a monetary supplement to the meals offered to seniors, that it entitles you to tell them HOW they must accept it.

    WRONG!

    There is a difference between sharing the gospel and forcing other people to sit through your public prayer. Are Christians so insecure in their beliefs that they can only persevere when they have the weight of the government behind them?

    So what you are saying is that it would be ok, if not amusing to you to jab Christians, but lord help up if we offend the non believer minority?

    When I get old, I'm going to tell the local senior center that I'm a whirling dervish, and I need to perform a sword dance before eating. And, if they refuse, I'm going to sue for religious discrimination.

    You think I'm a pain in the ass now, wait until I get old.

    It's the idea that any agency receiving federal money must be religiously sterile.

    The prayers weren't harming anyone.

    More like a rubber room with a nice little white jacket.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I bet many would like to see your "sword" act.
